Scottish Seniors'  Autumn Meeting at Nairn Dunbar on Thursday, Friday

The Scottish Seniors Golfing Society circuit moves to Nairn Dunbar Golf Club on Thursday and Friday for the Autumn Meeting, sponsored by McCrea Financial Services.

There is a healthy entry for the event with a good mix of ages and handicaps and all are looking forward to the challenge of playing one of the best courses in the North of Scotland as competition hots up for the Order of Merit titles ahead of the Finals Day shoot out at Blairgowrie on Thursday 10 September.

Ronnie Clark (Erskine) leads the Order of Merit race and is defending the title which he won last year at Panmure. Senior international captain, David Gardner (Broomieknowe) lies one point behind Ronnie but is not playing at Nairn Dunbar as he takes a break ahead of the European Senior Team Championship in Bulgaria from 1 to 5 September. Paul Moultrie (Royal Troon) lies third and will be keen to close the gap on Clark.

Lindsay Blair (Grangemouth) leads the Handicap Order of Merit race but misses the event due to next week’s trip to Bulgaria so Keith Reilly (Silverknowes), George Barrie (Callander) and Kenny Harrison (Carluke) will all be looking to close the gap.

Tom Sirel has a good lead in the Super Seniors (over 65) Order of Merit and will be hoping to stay ahead of closest challengers, Ken Thomson (Bramall Park ) and Colin Halcrow (Windyhill ) who are in action at Nairn.
